Coaching Points
Players must be encouraged to use proper technique when setting the ball such as:
  • Moving to the ball before setting
  • Feet shoulder width apart or slightly wider with one foot slightly ahead of the other
  • Knees bent slightly & weight evenly distributed on the balls of feet
  • Hands are cocked in anticipation of the set with your fingers firm and elbows out at a 45 and 90 degree angle.
  • When setting use the fingers using the ring and pinkie to stabilize the ball. The more surface area touched the better control.
  • Take the set around the forehead and use entire body to push it towards the hitter.
  • Follow through with your hands after the ball is released.
